Summary

Four local sesame varieties were tested at three plant populations. Increase in plant density increased seed yield, which was positively related to number of pods per plant, seeds per pod, 1000-seed weight, heights of main stems and numbers of nodes per plant. Changes in soil moisture did not affect relative turgidity, whereas stomatal openness decreased as the irrigation interval became longer.
